Book Recommendation: The Dirty Life

The Dirty Life: A Memoir of Farming, Food, and LoveI love to read.  Being the mother of two small children, as well as obsessed about real food, doesn't afford much leisure time.  Here and there, however, I'm able to snatch a moment or two and carry my thoughts to a far away place. 

Recently I finished The Dirty Life: A Memoir of Farming, Food and Love.  You can read more polished reviews on Amazon but if you're interested in sustainable living, like the idea of eating locally, all the while loving the comforts of the city, this book could interest you.

Author Kristin Kimball, ivy-league graduate and NYC journalist, found herself interviewing a farmer and fell in love - at first sight.  She tossed her big-city living to the wind and jumped feet first into living off the land.

If you're looking for a fun book to read this summer, this one I recommend.  I borrowed it from the library. See also Valerie's list of books for real food lovers - they're all in the Central Arkansas Library System now.
